Thank you for the clarification, Queen Mary I.

As to your question about photos, we've had people post their own photos before. As long as the quality is good enough to be of general interest, and as long as you identify them as photos that you took, I'm sure everyone would be very pleased to see them.

Thank you Elspeth. I have no idea how to credit photos that were taken by other kids so I am not even going to go there. But here is a link to Georgetown U for now:

I am trying to find the correct link to their message board to see if they are sharing. My family photos I will get to in the Diana thread.

If you want to post photos taken by other individuals, you should get their permission to do so, and then you can say something like "photo taken by a friend and posted with his/her permisison." I think that should cover all bases.

It really isn't a problem Queen Mary and it was hardly 'name dropping' as you didn't put anyones name.:) None of us really know who we are 'talking' with!
It is nice to see that even though he is your ex brother-in-law and after a nasty divorce, you are still on good enough terms with him to have a family web chat.

I found this quite amusing, you can almost taste the excitement, the 'wonder' and an extreme desire to be in the news. lol.

Why on earth would Charles be "embarrassed" to see a memorial plaque for his former wife 8 years after her death? He went to the funeral didn't he?

I think they are hopeful that the 'story' will be picked up by the bigger papers and earn them some credits. Is it just me or does the plaque look like a wheel trim?

Oh, honestly, talk about a storm in a teacup - or at least an attempt to create one. I assume Prince Charles is aware that Althorp is in Northamptonshire and that there'll be all sorts of memorials around.

Sometimes you can't win. If he doesn't look at it, it's obviously because he's too embarrassed to face reality; if he does look at it, it's obviously because he's consumed with guilt. Or vice versa, depending on who's writing the story.

I am always amazed at how people look over what Charles did for Diana after she died. How hard he fought for her to have a royal funeral. He made the Queen create a new type of funeral just for Diana. They forget all the touching stories and how Charles flew to Paris to collect her body. But I will say he probably does feel some guilt. I personally believe that he feels some guilt for bringing her into this and not standing up to his parents and society back then. There was nothing he could do about it, after trying to make the marriage work and having it inevitably fall apart. It wasnt his fault. They had to divorce. But he seems like the type of person who would feel guilty somehow. I heard he prays for Diana every night still.

I think he might have regrets but, I think guilt is another matter. Sadly people are fickle!

Penny Junior wrote in her book "Charles:Victim or Villian?" qualified Charles's feeling: he did not feel guilty about Diana's death because he had nothing to do with the accident; but he felt relieved after such a tragedy because there would be wars between Diana and him and caused more pains to their sons and themselves. He felt guilty about it because he did not have a feelling of guilt. Charles felt regret but not guilty probably. He wanted to have a happy marriage with Diana but they failed despite trying everything in his power.

I think everyone feels a sense of guilt when someone you knew or loved dies, It's the 'If' syndrome. Even people who have done everything humanly possible seem to end up using the If word.
Looking at his face at the time, going to France, the return etc, he seemed to me to be in complete shock and trying to hold himself together, for the sake of his sons and the public. He certainly did not look like a relieved man. I think if anything, he realised, quickly, that his hoped for life, with Camilla, was now going to be even more difficult.

Duchess of Cornwall, who is president of the National Osteoporosis Society, is shown a new bone density scanner by technician Emma Longrigg, left, during a visit to Northampton General Hospital, Friday Jan. 6, 2006. While the Duchess tours the hospital, the Prince of Wales is due to meet residents, planners and councillors on a visit to the environmentally friendly Upton village development on the outskirts of Northampton

I love the outfit Camilla's wearing. She looks amazing - sadly no hat but I don't think that outfit needs one.

They're quite fashionable amongst young girls here. They are like little balls of fur on a string and when they are wrapped around it makes a scarf.

Yes, a very nice outfit once again. I have seen quite a few older ladies wearing those scarves as well.

She does look nice and her flowers always flatter her and her outfit. The only thing I wish she would change is her teeth. She looked lovely again. Has any other engagment been posted up.

Thank you for your understanding Skydragon! Yes, I've know my ex-BIL since I was a child and the family still loves him dearly. The confusing part is he and my sister are friends again and he goes over to her house virtually every day to do repairs, etc. When I visit and see this I just keep my mouth shut but I am very muddled by it all. They are both dating now too. :/

Now as to the news about the Prince Of Wales visit and seeing his former wife's memorial-this is truly silliness. I am sure there are memorials all over the place now and he is used to it. After all he also went to the dedication of that unfortunate 'Memorial Fountain' and he seemed to survive intact. Good grief, it must be a slow news day-again!
